She changed her views and her black and white world was transformed into colour.8.Communication is a skill Communication is not just for workplace, it is useful in the bedroom, too.

One of Lucie’s boyfriends made a scene whenever she talked to another man. He just liked to have a partner who did what he told her. Yes, there was loss of control - that was, of course, what was exciting.

Her memoir is a no-holds-barred account of a woman's sexual awakening in her 50s, after the ending of a long and unfulfilling marriage.

The book follows Lucie and her more sexually adventurous alter-ego Adrienne as they explore a whole new world of exhibitionism, X-rated dating sites, BDSM and sexual liberation.

The future is a new adventure Nothing has stayed the same since I began this journey as Lucie.

Looking at my life now, I will most likely retire from my medical practice and I see my future life as a new adventure, the author says.
